Between knitting, teaching a crochet class, and waiting for a daughter to return home from Puerto Rico (delayed for a day due to airport closures related to the tornadoes) I have been working in some rug braiding time.
The preparation of the fabric strips is time-consuming and not much fun. I decided to prepare A LOT of strips so that I could braid un-interrupted, which is the part of making rugs that I like the most. I managed to add 5 rows this week. It takes longer to go around as the rug gets bigger, obviously. And B even brought me a piece of fabric from Puerto Rico to add to it. That's the best part of this rug...the stories and people that the scraps represent.
